Home Decor: choose fabrics for home


Planning interioryou have to consider fundamental elements such as space distribution and choice of materials. These are very important for environments usability and for aesthetic results .

But alone are not enough

Home reflects us, belongs to us. It enhances our soul nuances and gives us many different feelings.

Decor plays a key role in this space. It is THE home personality and, as we do when we choose a dress, we have to  use our personality to “dress” it.

Choose fabrics is always a critical moment. Market offer us many types: track, packet, roller, panel and blinds. Before choosing one we have to consider the environment:

Ceilings height, natural light, style

  • Ceilings height is important: for example, if we have a standard height we have to think that a heavy, colored or with valance curtain will give a dunk perception of vertical wall. Making it appear even lower.
  • Natural light helps in curtain material selection: more light we need less will be curtain thickness. Watch filtered sunlight during the day will help us to buy a correct fabrics weight.
  • Finally, style must be consistent with space around. If we choose minimal decor an eccentric curtain will be out of place conversely a neutral it will be perfect.

Be carefull also to patterns, these shall be well calibrated to avoid redundant decorative effect.
